Product description

Driven by a deep faith in their art, U2 are unique in rock history. Coming from the urban sprawl of 1970s Dublin, and finding their primary impulse in the emerging punk scene, they soon captivated audiences with their mesmerising performances. Rejecting the cynical pessimism of Western culture, U2's music was infused with a potent spirituality. Within a decade they achieved an unprecedented level of success for an Irish rock group, seizing the global imagination by the vital commitment of their music. Race of Angels probes beyond commercial hype into the well-springs of U2's creativity - fusing intensive conversations with the band with an eclectic exploration of Irish music, from its traditional past to the sounds of Horslips, The Pogues and The Cranberries. A dynamic blend of cultural analysis and musical commentary, Race of Angels is an unparalleled revelation of U2's vision and its impact on our world.
